Breakfast Club at Farmersgirl Kitchen

"Breakfast Club: Because breakfast should be more interesting than tea & toast or coffee & cereal. "

I'm delighted to be guest hosting Breakfast Club for Helen at Fuss Free Flavours until the end of February.    It's also Farmhouse Breakfast Week 20th - 26th January, 2013.  So it's the perfect opportunity to join in and share your favourites or try something new.

I've kept the theme fairly broad this month so show us your...

Cooked or Baked Breakfast

I'm a huge fan of breakfast and never leave the house without eating.  I don't usually have a cooked breakfast though, except for a bacon roll on a Sunday.  However in anticipation of Breakfast Club I cooked this poached egg and potato cake for my breakfast this morning.  You can see how to make the potato cakes on my 'No Waste Food Challenge' post.

I used this egg timer which was my 'Secret Santa' gift from work.  The egg timers are for 3 minutes, 4 minutes and 5 minutes.  I'm not sure just how well this worked for me as I managed to overcook the egg so no nice runny yolk!  Cute though isn't it?

There are loads of great breakfast ideas on the Shake Up Your Wake Up website, so you can get prepared for Farmhouse Breakfast Week and  I'll be back with more information and ideas towards the end of this week and throughout Farmhouse Breakfast Week.

That does look like a scrummy breakfast! I do love poached eggs and potato cakes :)

We usually have something cooked at weekends - most commonly boiled eggs which aren't that exciting to blog although I did manage it once here!

- meant to say - I must think of something more imaginative to do in time - nice long deadline I see so I'm sure I'll come up with something.
